The nunnery Kufa Petra is located west of the Kremaston Monastery and a short distance from it is very close to Neapolis. It is dedicated to the Annunciation. The view from the monastery to the province of Mirabello is panoramic. Very close to the monastery are the remains of a small temple which was built in cavernous rock. Probably the name of the monastery is due to this temple, which is built in a "hollow" stone.
The monastery of Moni Kofis Petras in Crete has comfortable facilities and elegantly crafted the surrounding area. The old church is of St. John the Baptist has been renovated. In the yard of the monastery there is the tomb of Bishop Meletios Chlapoutaki and beside the grave of his sister Irene.
